Some of the best jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14’s volume user experience

Many types of jailbreak tweaks exist for the purpose of enhancing an iPhone or iPad’s native capabilities. Among those, a handful focus on upgrading the handset’s volume-centric user experience.

Given the vast amount of jailbreak tweaks out there, we wanted to make tweak discovery easier for our readers. That said, this week’s roundup will be based on what we think are some of the best jailbreak tweaks for changing the volume level on pwned iOS 14 devices.

Since this has been a highly requested roundup, we won’t keep you waiting any longer. So let’s get right into things!

The best jailbreak tweaks for volume on iOS 14

SmartVolumeControl3 – $2.99

When you’re tired of looking at your handset’s standard volume HUD, it’s reassuring to know that jailbreaking offers refuge by providing plenty of different customization options.

SmartVolumeControl3 offers a bevy of different volume HUD interfaces that look completely different than the standard one. With so many options to choose from, there’s something for everyone.

StepUp – FREE

When you press your iPhone’s volume up or down button(s), they move the volume level up or down one step in the direction corresponding with the button you pressed, but unique circumstances, you may want each button press to have a more profound impact on your handset’s volume level than it does out of the box.

StepUp is a free jailbreak tweak that makes this possible. Once installed, you can adjust the threshold of impact that each button press has on your handset’s volume level. For example, you could have a single press of the volume up button bump the volume level up two levels instead of just one.

YTMusicVolume – FREE

FuckMyHearing – FREE

There’s a hearing safety feature built into iOS that tries to limit excessive volume levels when you’re using headphones. While the intentions are good, some users recognize that the volume fluctuations impact the user experience.
